I wanted to share a link with you that hit the web big about a year ago, but is related to the course I am currently teaching on World War II. Photographer Sergey Larenkov’s stunning then-and-now-at-the-same-time photos conjure the ghosts of the past dramatically and make us the modern world in a new way.
It’s like cubist multiperspectivism on crack. My Modern Metropolis also posted an interview with Larenkov, with more photos, including photos of Hitler in Paris.
Un the photograph the Soviet general looks like Marshal Zukov. Is it?
